Eligible Groups

Find out how to get your flu vaccination.

In Grampian you will no longer get your free vaccination from your local GP but will be invited to attend a local vaccination clinic. Please watch our short video.

This website will provide you with local information on why it is important to get the free flu vaccination, who is eligible and how to get the flu vaccination.

Why these changes?

In 2017, the Scottish Government and the Scottish General Practitioners Committee (SGPC) agreed vaccinations would move away from a model based on GP delivery to one based on NHS Board delivery through dedicated teams.

New Flu Helpline Number

To help our teams answer your flu vaccine queries more quickly we are moving to a new telephone system.

From 9am Tuesday 20th October you should call 0345 337 9899. This is charged as a local rate call.

First and foremost, this number is for those who have received an appointment that they wish to rearrange.

We apologise unreservedly for the delays and challenges you have experienced during this year’s flu vaccination programme. We want to reassure those eligible for free immunisation that they will be given an opportunity to get it. Vaccine clinics will continue to run until early December.
